We try to catch the sunrise Easter service at Vasquez Rocks whenever we can. It's the location where so many things have been filmed, most notably were the many TOS episodes. There are tons of Hollywood trades workers who live in that area along with some great amateur talent, so they put on an incredible passion play with the resurrection climax synched with the sunrise. It's very dramatic, but my wife always cuts the tension with the same corny joke when she whispers to me and asks whether I think they'll substitute The Gorn for Christ this year.

And as for Vegas, we really loved the Star Trek Experience. Things in Vegas can be so cheezy, but I think they did a great job.

I wish I would have known about these auctions when they come up. Don't have any Trek related memorabilia. Only few props from 'Blade Runner' and 'Blade Runner 2049'.

It's unfortunate that many set pieces end up getting destroyed or otherwise discarded. Remember seeing photos of one of the Spinner police vehicles from Blade Runner just allowed to decay on MGM back lot years ago. I know that the Petersen Automotive Museum in L.A. has multiple Spinners and other vehicles from both Blade Runner movies on display. High on my list to visit.

On (another) side note, LucasFilm loaned for long-term a full scale X-Wing fighter used in Star Wars to the National Air & Space Museum in DC. I believe it won't go on display until next year, as it's currently undergoing preservation at the Udvar-Hazy facility in VA. It's in the restoration hangar, which I think is viewable by the public.
